Why not get all new cast members? I understand wanting the new series to have at least Some of attributes of the old one, but won't the voices Still sound different since they're older? I'm just wondering; maybe Lupin and Jigen Will sound the same as they used to...?

Although I love Sawashiro Miyuki, I wish the cast would all stay the same.

Masuyama Eiko is the one and only Fujiko.

I love Sawashiro Miyuki BUT no one can top Masuyama Eiko as Fujiko.

I feel sad for Naya Goro because I know he has serious difficulties to keep his Zenigata voice but I still can't think that Ryoga will actually share his voice with him.

No comments on Goemon.

All these Lupin voice actors deserve medals! Historic, legendary runs, and hey we've still got Lupin and Jigen on board.

And luckily, from the clips online the new Fujiko (Miyuki) sounds great, she's got it down.
